‘It’s the circle of remakes!’ – Reimagining The Lion King Songs As The Tale Of Jon Favreau’s Latest Disney Job

the-lion-king-600x311

 Instead of reporting it in the traditional way, I thought I’d tell you about the news that Disney are making a reimagining of The Lion King through the power of song lyrics:

The Circle of Remakes

Nants ingonyama bagithi Jon Favreau (There comes a Jon Favreau)

Sithi uhhmm ingonyama (Oh yes, it’s a Jon Favreau)

Nants ingonyama bagithi Jon Favreau (There comes a Jon Favreau)

Sithi uhhmm ingonyama (Oh yes, it’s a Jon Favreau)

Ingonyama

Siyo The Lion King (He’s going to reimagine The Lion King)

Ingonyama

Ingonyama nengw’ Jon Favreau enamabaal Disney (It’s a Jon Favreau and Disney)

Ingonyama nengw’ Jon Favreau enamabaal Disney (It’s a Jon Favreau and Disney)

Ingonyama nengw’ Jon Favreau enamabaal Disney (It’s a Jon Favreau and Disney)

Ingonyama nengw’ Jon Favreau enamabaal Disney (It’s a Jon Favreau and Disney)

Ingonyama nengw’ Jon Favreau enamabaal Disney (It’s a Jon Favreau and Disney)

Ingonyama nengw’ enamabala (se-to-kwa!)
Ingonyama nengw’ enamabala (asana)

From the day the first Disney animation begun
Featuring, adaptations , of fairytales for the young
There’s more to remake than can ever be remade
More to re-imagine than can ever be re-imagined
There’s far too much money at stake here
More profits to make than can ever be made
But Jon Favreau’s Jungle Book’s rolling high
Through the public eye
Keeps chugging along on the endless round
It’s the circle of remakes
And it entertains us all
Through despair and hope
Through faith and love
Till we refuse to pay
On the path unwinding
In the circle
The circle of remakes

It’s the circle of remakes
And it moves us all
Through despair and hope
Through faith and love
Till we refuse to pay
On the path unwinding
In the circle
The circle of remakes

 Can You Feel The Hate Tonight?

There’s a bitter resentment to the rush of money
When the house of mouse writes a cheque to Mr Favreau
A  moment of upset, that inspires the internet feuds
It’s enough for the internet folk to just explain their views

And can you feel the hate tonight
It is where we are
It’s desired for the keyboard warriors
That The Lion King falls hard
And can you feel the hate tonight
How it’s laid to rest
It’s enough to make trolls and spambots
Sweat their smelly vests

There’s a time for original ideas if they only learn
That the movie studios need your dough
There’s a rhyme and reason to the nostalgic releases
When the familiarity of these ever-growing franchises sells more seats than most

And can you feel the hate tonight
It is where we are
It’s desired for the keyboard warriors
That The Lion King falls hard
And can you feel the hate tonight
How it’s laid to rest
It’s enough to make trolls and spambots
Sweat their smelly vests

Reimagining Old Classics

Reimagining old classics! What a wonderful thing
Reimagining old classics! Ain’t no passing craze
It means CGI animals replacing the animation of yesterday
It’s Disney’s  money-making philosophy

Take John Favreau here
Why, when he left Marvel Studios

When he left Marvel Studios

He found his movies lacked a certain appeal
He would achieve a 48% rotten score on Rotten Tomatoe’s scale

Jon Favreau: I’m a sensitive soul though I seem thick-skinned
And it hurt that my critics never stood sci- fi western things
And oh, the shame

He was ashamed

Jon Favreau: Thought of changin’ my name

What’s in a name?

Jon Favreau: And I got downhearted

How did ya feel?

Jon Favreau: Everytime that I were in bed the passion didn’t quite feel the same

Hey! Jon Favreau! Too much information for the readers!

Jon Favreau: Oh. Sorry

Reimagining old classics! What a wonderful thing
Reimagining old classics! Ain’t no passing craze
It means CGI animals replacing the animation of yesterday
It’s Disney’s  money-making philosophy

Reimagining old classics!
Reimagining old classics! Reimagining old classics!
Reimagining old classics! Reimagining old classics!
Reimagining old classics! Reimagining old classics!
Reimagining old classics! Reimagining–

It CGI animals replacing the animation of yesterday
It’s Disney’s money-making philosophy
Reimagining old classics!

I say “Reimagining”
I say “Old classics”

The Lion King’s release date has yet to be confirmed.
